We work with small to medium-sized businesses across all industries

Our philosophy, and our disciplined approach to strategic decision-making, applies across all sectors. But we don’t follow a set business coaching programme. We believe that every business is different, which is why we tailor our support to meet your goals. We’ve helped thousands of companies for over a decade through our learning events, online business resources and our one-to-one personal business consultation.

Business Health Assessment

Is your business resilient and robust enough to take on the challenges of 2023/24?

Discover what you are doing well, where you could improve and the warning signs that require urgent attention.

  • You’ll be asked about 8 ‘health factors’ that are critical for business success
  • Go with your first answer rather than analyse the situation too deeply
  • The test should take under 10 minutes
  • You’ll receive an in-depth analysis of your results upon completion

Professional business coaching – a proven way to accelerate growth

Most successful business owners use external advice. Research suggests 90% of businesses that experience hyper growth have access to external support to help them plan and deliver that growth, with business coaching cited as the ‘most trusted’ source of advice.

A good business coach: your best friend and biggest critic

Pro-actions coaches will help you clarify your vision, strategy and goals – even if that means we have to be a bit brutal. We know that it’s hard to be objective about your own business. We can provide that independent voice to challenge your thinking and hold you to account so you can drive your business towards success.

Get in touch to arrange a no-obligation chat with one of our advisors. If you do decide to work with our business coaches, there are no long-term contract commitments. We bespoke our involvement to ensure you’re in full control of this investment.

‘Hands-on’ business consultation: the Pro-actions difference

We believe that we can’t do our job unless we get under the skin of the economics and value of your business. Before we do anything else, we will grapple with your figures and dissect your business model until we really understand your business.

Is your company at risk? Our business consultancy services can help

No business owner starts out thinking about insolvency and going bust, but in the current climate, it’s more important than ever to be prepared. Helping to manage your cash flow, devising business plans and sales and marketing strategies, or even implementing turnaround strategies for resolving insolvency — our expert advisors will provide your business with the support you need so you can bounce back better than ever.

Client feedback

Pro-actions business coaches are widely endorsed by local authorities, high street banks and professional business services. But hear what our clients say about us:
“When I acquired my business a few years ago, I had ambition and energy but I lacked a clear strategy. My Pro-actions Coach has given me the necessary structure to enable me to really grow my business, creating significant value in a relatively short time.”

Tom McMillan

Managing Director, Timeless Tube

“They have helped focus our actions…We have developed a clear strategic view of where we are going and how we can get there and have hit our annual growth targets as a result of the work undertaken.”

Matt Saunders

Managing Director, Storm

“Pro-actions have provided me with excellent coaching skills during our most challenging moments.”

Emma Woodthorpe

“Having someone with such experience and an external perspective has been invaluable, and I have benefited hugely from our coach’s ability to offer sound advice, support and reassurance.”

Steve Harding

Managing Director, Goodfellow Communications Ltd

“I initially engaged with Pro-actions after our accountant had recommended them. We really needed to expand and had a number of problems to resolve before we could do that…we have moved the business on to a much higher level of professionalism.”

Richard Fewings

Managing Director, Volsom Ltd

“Pro-actions has helped us develop a focused marketing plan, targeting and retaining customers through system and process development. I would recommend them for any business that needs new direction.”

Roy Roberts

Director, Thames Valley Dyno-Rod

“The coach was extremely attentive…he has greatly helped shape the direction I have gone in. He is conscientious, and both clear and articulate in his advice. I would certainly recommend talking to Pro-actions both pre and/or during the setting up of a new business.”
